The causes of premature death at a young age can be central sleep apnea, rupture, aneurysms, thrombus separation and a number of other pathologies. Therapist, cardiologist Tatyana Shalygina spoke about this.
According to the specialist, central sleep apnea is caused by a decrease in the formation of an impulse in the central nervous system that stimulates the respiratory muscles. This can lead to cessation of breathing during sleep, writes “AiF”.
The doctor noted that people with this pathology often complain of difficulty falling asleep, inadequate and intermittent sleep, drowsiness during the day due to the fact that they could not rest at night. There are also those who wake up with a feeling of shortness of breath, shortness of breath, which are relieved if the person takes a half-sitting position or adds several pillows under the head.
Aortic dissecting aneurysm may present with symptoms of heart failure. Pathology is accompanied by fainting and impaired cerebral circulation.
Thromboembolism or separation of a blood clot is a common cause of sudden death in people of working age.
“If the patient has sudden shortness of breath and feeling short of breath, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Also, sometimes the doctor can be alerted by something on the cardiogram, ”advises Shalygina.
Earlier in February, cardiologist Yuri Konev said that the causes of heart attacks in young people are malnutrition, a sedentary lifestyle and disturbed sleep patterns.
